To The Editor, Over the 55 years that I have been a resident of Groton I have seen many changes to the town; i.e. growth in population, homes, school and municipal buildings, etc. For the most part this change has been beneficial, but change can also be detrimental. The latest request for...
Dear Editor, The Groton Dunstable Schools have been so fortunate to have had Karen Tuomi on staff for 20 years, she is retiring this week. Karen is one of the most amazing women I know, she will be a very hard act to follow. Jane Bouvier
Dear Editor, I’m no historian, but I enjoy stories about Groton’s past. Like the one about our 1898 Town Seal. Although Groton was founded in 1655, it had no official town seal until the 19th century had very nearly clicked over into the 20th. And a seal was only adopted then because 1898 was the...
Dear Editor, Regarding our Town Seal: there is a book called The town and city seals of Massachusetts by Allan Forbes (accessible via hathitrust.org), that some may find interesting. It shows many town seals (including at least one other seal with an image of the Bible and many with churches) and...
To The Editor, From the lofty vantage of 2017 it is easy to forget the many that helped build the town we call Groton. We tend to study history featuring a few great people. In truth, we owe our status to the many, a truth proclaimed by our town seal. For those not familiar with the seal, it is...

Dear Editor, A few weeks ago I signed a petition that seemed innocuous enough; a request to commission a committee to redesign the Town Seal for Groton. As an artist, prior curator of the Groton Public Library for eight years, and current Gallery Coordinator for UML’s Art & Design Department...
Dear Editor: As spring approaches, our local turtles will emerge from months of hibernation under water or, if a box turtle, under leaf litter on land, to face monumental hurdles to survival. Turtles, with other reptiles and amphibians, are the local wildlife species most at risk of extinction in...
Dear Editor: Students, parents, faculty, building staff – lights, action, camera. Kudos to all for the magical Flo Ro production of “Beauty & the Beast” with its ascendant theme: “We can all be human again.” Claire Macy Baddacook Pond
To the Editor, Are you a band instrument musician, currently or in the past? Did you play a band instrument when you were in school? Would you like to play in a fun, non-judgmental environment that will benefit your Town? For many years, Groton had a “Chowder Band”. The band played and...
